Thanks

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I've tried synaptic but it doesn't install the executable.
If I download the deb from the flightgear site it installs but crashes.
Looking for someone who has a working flightgear on their lmde.
Thanks for the replies though... :)

Yes, I can confirm that the LMDE repositories only have flightgear data files. But the main program files are not there.

1. One solution is to compile the program, as it is explained here: http://wiki.flightgear.org/Building_FlightGear_-_Debian

I have done it, with some adaptations, and it works. If you are still interested, I can reproduce for you the steps I did.

2. Other solution, that probably also works would be to add the testing repository

Code: Select all
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free


to your sources list. You can do this in Origins of Software program. Then update the repositories

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
.

Then install flightgear, and afterwards disable the testing repository again and again update the repositories.

I have not done this, but I have seen that probably no dependencies conflicts will appear. Nevertheless, the best solution, the clean one, is the first.
